Visited after some fresh sun on the weekend. Just on the beach so perfect location. Had their grilled fish of the day which was cooked perfect and the moules. They were very kind to our 4 year old daughter and would recommend.

West Beach has been a fashionable place to eat for some time. The location is good, the décor modern and the menu varied and not ridiculously priced. So why have I rated the lunch as only average? I could not fault the food for myself...More

good evening, the seafood platter is designed as a sharing platter. When I come to dine I often have between four as a shared starter or between two of us as a main course. best regards David

I don't recall dogs in the restaurant itself. However there is an outside terrace (weather permitting) where you could sit with a dog.

WestBeach is your ideal venue for fine dining on the beachfront. Just a stone’s throw from the Bournemouth beach promenade, we pride ourselves on fresh, local shellfish and seafood, winning accolades from The Times, Sunday Times and Waitrose Good Food Guide in the process. All year round the bright, open-plan interior dining room is bathed in sunlight. In summer we open up our al fresco dining terrace and deck area for more casual drinking. Under the passionate stewardship of head chef Marcin Pacholarz, we serve a lunch and dinner menu based around classic British seafood and shellfish, using local fishermen, locally sourced produce, and our exquisite desserts are prepared in house. We offer an extensive wine list of New World and signature European labels, and host elegant entertainment events throughout the year – from jazz evenings to art exhibitions. Come and enjoy outstanding service and a view that’s hard to beat. Dogs are welcome in one half of the restaurant
